The Condiment Chronicles

We make fruit ketchup! This is our blog for news, recipes, and general musings from the 'Chups team.

After making homemade (WHOLE WHEAT!) tagliatelle last night, we have to agree …

Italy in Washington! Tagliatelle bolognese. #homemade #pasta


Grilling season has officially descended upon the mid-Atlantic region and whilst visiting family in Roanoke, Virginia this weekend, we celebrated properly — with a delicious pork tenderloin! We also took the opportunity to try out a 'Chups marinade recipe that Matt had been creating in his head and it certainly did not disappoint.

Serve this pork with some grilled veggies and a side salad and you’ve got an easy and fairly light summer meal. Until you eat 3 of these cookies for dessert. 

Once again, a terrorist act has only assisted in confirming human resolve. One act of hate produces countless acts of selflessness, courage and community. The faces of bravery will be the images we remember, the stories of love and hope what we tell our children’s children.

So, to that we say … nice try, haters.

Is meat on your next menu? If so, use this handy pairing guide to help you choose the best flavor of ‘Chups to serve with your meal. 

But as always, be adventurous! Use this as a guide and not as a rule.

We love sports at ‘Chups. Pride, glory, team building … they represent many things we value in business and in life. (And hey, a sport is what brought us together!)

This week, it’s all about America’s pastime: baseball! And what is synonymous with baseball? HOT DOGS! And what ‘dog is complete without America’s favorite condiment? KETCHUP.

This season, we’re encouraging you to try something new with your frank. Throw a sample size ‘Chups jar in your pocket or purse (we recommend cherry or plum) and bring it to the ballpark with you!

So, for the next week, we’ll be offering FREE SHIPPING on all sample size orders. If you already know your favorite flavors and want to customize your sample pack to 1 or 2 (or even 3!) specific flavors, we are more than happy to do that for you. Just place an order and shoot us a note at
